How can anyone who loves this country believe Donald Trump is fit to lead it? How is it possible to ignore such overwhelming evidence (readily supplied by Trump himself via statements, tweets, the choices he makes, etc.) that he is doing damage to our country? And as I ask that, what really gets me is that I expect a good many “conservatives” will foolishly attempt to illogically surmise that I stand rigid and inflexible with that opinion because I am some sort of “liberal” or “progressive” or “snowflake.”

Nice try. Liberals and conservatives gripe in equal measure; two sides of the same coin. Forget labels for a moment. Shelve policies briefly. We have a volatile, unprincipled man running our country. I cannot ignore that. I cannot accept that.

It’s a mistake to oversimplify peoples’ aversion to Trump. And that oversimplification is dangerous to the future of this nation. It means that a great many Americans are willing to turn a blind eye to the egregious behavior of their leader no matter what he does or how he behaves. It means the degradation of our country as we allow an infantile man to represent us as Americans.

Talk about conduct unbecoming.
